Water Quality Experts Gather in Denver for National Water Pollution Conference

Aug 13, 2012, 11:05 ET from StormCon

DENVER, Aug. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Infrastructure, low-impact development and a healthy bottom line will be at the top of the list when leading experts on storm and surface-water quality gather here next week (Aug.19–23) to explore the newest water pollution prevention and mitigation technologies, share their recent experiences, and discuss which strategies are most effective in minimizing surface water pollution.  

With NPDES compliance in mind, StormCon 2012 brings together municipal and government officials, builders and contractors, site inspectors, civil engineers, designers, regulators, enforcement officials, planners, consultants, researchers, educators, EPA officials, property executives, and other water quality professionals under one roof to focus on this critically important topic.

StormCon fills a vital need by bringing government officials responsible for public health and safety and protecting our water supplies together with private sector engineers, consultants, project developers, and solution providers.  With the increasingly urgent demand to protect our water supplies, the pollution prevention strategies and technologies being discussed and on display at StormCon should not be missed.

The newly expanded course offerings now include "Fire & Rain: Rapid Assessment and Emergency Mitigation Measures Following Wildfires."  This is a great opportunity to learn from those who have performed vital roles in emergency post-fire efforts throughout the west. If your watershed is potentially impacted by wildfires, you should be there.  See details at http://www.stormcon.com/fireandrain.htm.

The multi-track course curriculum features more than 125 educational sessions presented by the nation's leading Stormwater experts and covers a range of material focusing on Green Infrastructure, Urban Retrofit, BMP case studies, Stormwater program management, NPDES, water-quality monitoring, Industrial Stormwater Management, Erosion & Sediment Control, and advanced research topics.  Nearly 200 vendors and service providers will exhibit Stormwater-related products and equipment, the world's largest tradeshow of its kind.

StormCon is the premier annual event offering expertise from the nation's leading experts and provides unparalleled opportunity to learn from the very best in the field.  The StormCon Conference Program with complete course descriptions, presenters, conference highlights, and registration information can be found online at www.StormCon.com.
